Gitzo Traveler Kits & More

Two new Gitzo Series 1 Traveler Kits have arrived. They offer the perfect balance between lightweight when carrying, and height and rigidity when shooting. Also, three other new tripods and levelling base listed.

News Image

The latest Traveler tripods boast the 180° leg folding mechanism pioneered by Gitzo, now even stronger thanks to the state of the art Carbon eXact tubes. Stiffer than the antecedents’ Carbon 6X tubes, the new tubes include High Modulus carbon fibre, and have larger tube diameters for stability. The tripods also feature the ergonomic Traveler G-lock system. Its space efficiency makes it possible to have taller tripods with compact folded lengths. The curved external form provides good grip, while the internal O-ring achieves softer operation and reduces dust and grit entering the locks. The two new Traveler kits pair these tripods with the perfectly balanced GH1382TQD Centre Ball Head, newly designed for ultimate smoothness and precision, while slim enough to fit between the folded legs. Kit GK1545T-82TQD is the 4-section version and is much taller than its predecessor (GK1580TQD4, which will be discontinued when last stock sold). Kit GK1555T-82TQD is the 5-section version and offers an outstanding height/closed length ratio. These kits are the perfect companion of travelling photographers, both pro and advanced amateurs, always looking for the best equipment for their shootings while on trip.
